Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

    .... I know it is "keye" but what is the correct spelling. In fact traditional RN drinks, ideas welcome.

    Yours in hope

    Nope not working. Or more likely the steam powered Navystar system can't be arsed.
     
  3. Guns,

    I was taught that this well known pussers drink is spelt Kye.

    I (and my mentor) may be wrong, but I haven't seen or learnt of any way

    of spelling it.

    Limers, both orange and lemon, were alright as long as they were mixed

    in the correct proportion of powder to water. The lemon, made an excellent

    cleaning solution for the scrubbing of the wooden decking in the foodstores.

    Whilst on the subject of drinks on my 1st draft (Brighton in the 70s) it

    was the beer "PIPER" I haven't seen this for ages, is it still available
    anywhere?

    You, Sir, are a Gentleman. Kye it is, well as far as the poster going up in the WR will say. If it is wrong I shall of course reserve the right to deny all knowledge and blame the Midshipman.

    The link now works as the hamster in our server has been poked. The link is great.

    So end of this thread. Unless anyone wants to continue it and complain about how in my day we used dragons to power the Navystar server........
     
  5. If you've tasted it you don't care about the spelling. If your haven't, we don't care.

  7. ''PIPER''...remember it well, all the different Scot regiments on the cans, a fine brew.
    Blokes would set about the empties with Gilbos and stick the metal pics on their locker fronts like fridge magnets. :thumright:
